If you aren't a Monty Python fan, never mind.
If so, guess what song I'm humming now ;D
My children have been reading a lot of Calvin and Hobbes lately but we just picked up audio books of The Hobbit and The Complete Tales of Uncle Remus.
Thing Two LOVES the story about Brer Rabbit and Brer Fox,
"Do anything, anything at all, only PLEEEEEEEASE don't throw me in the brier patch!"
Thing One has been working on a PowerPoint show to illustrate the Rudyard Kipling story, How the Whale Got His Throat. We have a recording of Just So Stories and the Things have been listening to them a ton also.
Hey, anything that get them away from the video games for a while has to be good, right?

We have visited, and even camped there. It is really an amazing place. You can take a virtual visit here.
When Thing One was a smaller Thing he sat on a nurse log in the Hoh and watched an elk watch him for a while. It was about the only subject he discussed for nearly a month. All conversations led to the Hoh.
"Thing One, would you like to ride your Big Wheel now?"
"Yah! Let's go! Mom, 'member that time I saw that melk (which is, being interpreted, elk)?"
"I believe so. Do you remember it?"
"Uh huh, he had big shiny eyes, and he looked right at me. I liked it."
"Thing One, it's time for bed."
"Mom, one time, I saw a melk, and I sat down, and looked at him and he looked right back at me, mom."
"I believe I remember that, Thing One. What did you think of that?"
"It was really awesome, mom."
The Hoh is a great place to visit for recalling the wonder of the world.

Some days I see the amazing growth, the maturity, and the development of these amazing human beings and I think, they can do anything! They could lead the free world, cure cancer, be husbands who always put the toilet seat down, or end world hunger.
Then they pull some bone-headed maneuver and I wonder if they will make it to adulthood, or even the next day alive. Thing One obtained a retired candle so he got some gasoline, a long handled match and proceeded to experiment with these item IN THE GARAGE!! The garage where we keep the three wheelers (including the one that leaks gas) and two motorcycles.
My mom has said in the past, when people were being excessively anxious about their children, "It's ok, let the six year old child learn to walk down stairs alone, after all, you're young, you can have more!"
So when my children try to take their own lives I think to myself, They need to stop that! I'm
not young anymore, I am not having more!!
For the last few days Thing One has been working on a duct tape tote bag for me. It is yellow and gree stripes and I am so looking forward to using it. I will definitely let him live another day.

Or if you'd rather be Feng Shui, you can go see what they have to tell you about that over at Blogthings. Evidently our feng is very shui.
